Product Description: Jade Snail is a Chinese green tea made up of tightly rolled fuzzy buds that resemble spiral shells or the scroll of a violin. While steeping, they unfurl to deliver intricate notes of roasted nuts, soft smokiness and a hop-like crispness. As it fades, a dry white grape character lingers. Our Jade Snail green tea is intriguingly delicate and bold.

The dry leaves have an aroma of sun-warmed hay and tobacco.
The light golden infusion has a sweet, smoky, savory aroma with a taste that is savory and smoky with notes of green vine. The finish is long and dry.
The first infusion was light and sweet. Subsequent infusions developed a deeper color with greener notes and mild astringency, as the tightly rolled leaves unfurled.
